-His knowledge of the rules and regulations of the game is great.
-He is involved with skills sessions for livetoplayrugby and his presentation, communication and ability is perfect.

TESTIMONIAL FOR CHRIS DE MEYER
To whom it may concern
I deem it a pleasure and privilege to be afforded the opportunity of supplying Christoffel Bernadus de Meyer , ID 760909 5298 080, with a testimonial.
I, Rene Glen Berndt ID 651010 5034 988, have been a referee with the SWD Rugby Union for the past nine years and have known Chris for the same period. I have refereed, Mossel Bay Rugby
Club on many occasions(League games, Friend lies and just fun games too)have been involved in their “new law” training and have gotten to know Chris quite well.
Chris was not only the Coach of their first team but also a player, when it was necessary. I must add, a very good player and has a very good knowledge of the Laws. This attests to his commitment at all levels. Chris rejoined Mossel Bay Club after returning from overseas where he too, played/coached and immediately a big difference was visible in his team. I would go so far as to say, the difference was notable in the whole club. He is a strict disciplinarian and does not tolerate bad discipline, be it on or off the field. Chris is a people’s person and due to his own “lead by example”, enthusiastic approach to all things, he is a good motivator of people, therefore, ensuring the best out of them. Chris is an extremely loyal person and any less from his players is not tolerated. Nothing is ever too much trouble for him and he constantly goes the extra mile for his club. Chris has high standards, on and off the field and does not take loss, lightly. He takes pride in his work and takes any given task very seriously, with a “do not muck about” attitude. Often pondering what could have been done differently, goes back to the drawing board and then fixes it. He does not, however, forget he is dealing with people, with limitations and imperfection as himself, therefore, does not drive his players like a task-master. Chris can converse with people at all levels and I and my colleagues have received nothing but warm reception and appreciation when visiting his club.
Chris goes with my best wishes and I personally ensure any institution who should employ/make use of his services, will be getting the “best man for the job” Chris has a successful, proven track-record and is a credit to any organization.
This I attest to under the prescribed oath without undue bias or prejudice
